DEEP Officers Who Helped At Sandy Hook Among Those To Be Honored

Originally posted on CBS Connecticut:

MERIDEN, Conn. (AP) _ Connecticut officials will be honoring the good work of state environmental conservation police officers.

The Department of Energy and Environmental Protection has scheduled an awards ceremony for 6 p.m.  at the Connecticut State Police Museum in Meriden.

Department Commissioner Daniel Esty says awards will be given this year to 11 environmental conservation officers who responded to the shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown in December. A gunman killed 20 first-graders, six adults and himself at the school, after shooting his mother to death at their home.

Esty said the 11 officers helped evacuate the school and search the building.

Also receiving awards are three DEEP emergency dispatchers and the Maine Warden Service critical incident stress debriefing team.
